My brother and Sister-in-law from Ohio came for a visit and to bring me some more little trees. I really don't have enough. These will take the place of some that have left us.This is the best one and first he planted right close to the one that fell over during the big storm we had last year. It is about a 3 ft. blue spruce. This is him doing some of the final work.
We had a good time, He also brought a couple more pines , a Oak tree, which he also planted. The red bud he didn't get done as he didn't know where I wanted it. Here a week later and it still isn't planted but hope to do it today.
They stayed till Friday and we went in every day to see DH. On Friday they were giving him a chest X-ray and come to find out he had pneumonia, Congestive heart failure and another infection. I hadn't notice his legs the last few days but his feet were swollen again. This isn't the first time this has happened. They were taking care of it and then yesterday he really swelled up. More pills to get rid of that fluid and now his coming home is questionable. Time will tell.
My daughter came up yesterday for overnight. She had a meeting of the group of her His School graduating class that are going on a cruise. She is stopping to see her Dad now.
At least I got some sewing done. It always helps to relax when you are stressed.
Here is all the completed 9 patches for Double Delight. I think now I can get on to putting those two bigger blocks together.
Here are the first few that I had done by the end of last week. Isn't that going to look neat? They are so easy now to put together. Right now I have a lot of the board covered. I know I won't have room for all of them. Need 5 of the fancy block across the top and six of them down. There will be a plain color for the setting blocks.
We have been having a whole lot of rain which means the grass and weeds are growing faster than I can get them pulled out. After leaving at 7 AM to get to swimming and getting home about 9, I am ready for a nap. So what do I do? Check my mail of course. Then today since I had plenty of time and it was raining and who wants to go out in the rain to plant trees. I figured it was time for blogging a bit. Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully this next week will be better. At least I have a lot more blocks to get together. Also still need to square up a lot of 9 patches.
